Creating the Personal Archive


Course description

If you are a photographer, an artist, a family historian or a collector, you probably have a body of work that needs to be organized and protected. This may range from artworks to invoices. How do you determine what is important? How can you take that box in the closet and turn it into an organized record of your (or someone else’s) life?

This one-day session is an introduction to the world of personal archiving. Your instructor will help you to decide what your archive is, what is important to keep and what you might edit out. We’ll consider certain things you may want to add to your archive to add value and also talk about organizing and protecting or preserving your work and files.

You’ll learn about institutional archives, what they look for when they acquire collections and what you have to do to make your collection more appealing to an outside archive. We’ll look at examples of how artists and photographers organize and store their work. And finally we’ll discuss the value of archives and why it is important to make long-range plans for the future of your archives.

Please bring a bag lunch, pen/paper and laptop or other note-taking equipment.
